About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Roses are my absolute favourite flower. I completely understand your obsession with them. Live the crocheted ones too xx


Get another colour next week, then the week after, extend the joy :-(


Sorry, that should have been a smile! :-) :-)


Thanks for bringing fab colour to a bleurgh weather week! I thought of you Lucy this week when I looked at my clothes and thought "why all the black.?". I promptly bought some stripy veeeeery bright socks! Thanks for bringing colour to my life x

You made me smile. Thank you


hi I think we should all spend at least some part of each day mentally and emotionally at a child level! I think we would all be a lot happier if we did! Lovely post, as usual Lucy, :)


Your wreath is looking amazing so far, I can't wait to see it finished! Yay for orange roses too :) Jenny x


I have a complete addiction to Roses, in the garden, in vases, in photos on my walls, fragrance, lip balm, moisturiser! Love! Can't wait to see your finish Rose Wreath!


I know what you mean about the weather Lucy I am so sick of this constant rain enough is enough! Those roses are beautiful and such a bargain. I'm hoping that the rain will have eased by the time my roses bloom in the garden I have 15 rose bushes and for the past 2 years their lovely blooms have been ruined by rain. your wreath is going to be beautiful such lovely bright cheerful colours. Have a lovely weekend I think it's going to be fine tomorrow, fingers crossed xx


I know what you mean about the rain -I never leave without a brolly at the moment! Those roses look gorgeous - wish I could get some fresh flowers for my uni room to brighten it up a bit :) Alice x


Oh - so sorry to hear of the leak in the Attic. But those orange roses really are delightful. And as always, your photos and your crocheting are inspirational. Hope the weekend treats you kindly.

Oh, I had a chuckle at the thought of the indoor paddling pool but I was also inwardly feeling your pain! I can just imagine my babykins doing the same thing. Bad weather and lots of wet clothes are enough to test anyone's patience.

Dear Lucy tomorrow is going to be better weatherwise. Thank goodness.
Love your idea for the rosy wreath and the tiny forgetmenots(they come up in the garden every year and I put some in a tiny jug).
Will we have any summer this year? Have a good weekendxx.
PS Those roses of yours were a good bargin and a wonderful splash of colour.

Really feel for you with your leak, paddling toddler, wet clothes everywhere! But as usual your cheery post a delight! I am finding myself going for colour more and more everywhere and I think it's your influence! Although I have always loved vibrant colour in the garden. I have just planted another lovely orange David Austen rose in the garden.


We had a nasty bit of rainy early spring here ourselves. Now instead of the horrible humidity we normally have it is actually quite nice, sweater weather actually. I am loving it, just like I am loving your pretty colors, those roses are gorgeous!!!

Just wanted to FYI that my dear friend said your site was a saving grace the other day. She needed to crochet some flowers and I sent her here and she loved it!!!



Those roses are indeed absolutely gorgeous I love the colour!


Who could've passed up such roses? They are beyond beautiful. And I mean your crochet ones as well as the "live" ones.

I'm sorry, I did smile at the image of Little B splashing about fully clothed!


Woke up to sunshine this morning- makes such a difference.
M&S pain au raisin always hits the spot I find.Leaky bay windows... ours leaked into the cat bed, being stuffed with foamy stuff it just soaked up all the water,didn't realise there was a leak until, wondering why the cats were ignoring their usual spot by the window, I patted the bed to encourage them...eugh!

Almost midnight, watching Murder on the Orient Express (for the umpteenth time) my ' J ' upstairs snoring happily, as I try and tire myself out with a very late night. Huge chuckle at the vision of Little B hurling himself into the leaky collection bowl! Of course, what else would he do??

Those orange roses look amazing, and no, they wouldn't have been my first choice either. Nah, you don't need nearly £15 worth of roses..........it would be colour overload in your house!

Lovely post, thank you, I've enjoyed reading it.


I have never before seen an orange rose!


Me gusta mucho !!!!!! Haberte descubierto , es hermoso tu blog !!!!!Saludos desde Argentina, Vero Fernandez

I love your posts Lucy ~ so colorful and lovely. They inspire me!

I'm not sure if you celebrate Mother's Day in the UK, but Happy Mother's Day from the United States! Have a wonderful weekend. :)


I have to say that I love seeing your crochet projects. You have such a wonderful knack for putting colours together. Your work is beautiful!!


Oh Lucy, so sorry to hear of your hectic week, water and leeking roofs are never good, I can speak from experience, Sydney has experienced its wettest Summer in over 60 years and whilst camping at the Basin in Palm Beach back in January we came home to half our house flooded from a leeking roof! Never good; but I must say those flowers would have cheered me up, they are just gorgeous. Thank you as always for the pick-me-up post. You'll never know what it does to my working day; smiles all round. Simone xx
